• Natural Immunotherapy in several cases of pancytopenia seems to be promoting a profound bone marrow response in 3 weeks which is not expected with traditional drug therapy
  • Natural Immunotherapy in conjunction with traditional medications often will improve the clinical response in an otherwise unfavorable situation

Patient: Smokey
Age/Sex/Breed: 7 year old male neutered DLH

7/21/08 - Presented for marked lethargy. Physical exam was unremarkable other than mildly pale gums & increased respiratory rate. Temp was 101.5 Some flea dirt was noted and prior FeLV & FIV testing was negative. Leukemia/Rabies/FVRCP vaccines all current.

A Complete cell count was initially preformed. A profound pancytopenia (very low white & red blood cells and low platelets) was discovered. No obvious blood parasites were noted on the blood slides. Further diagnostic procedures were declined by the owner.

7/21/08- RBC 1.30 million WBC 1.50 thousand platelets 20 thousand

8/4/08 RBC 9.55 million WBC 8.85 thousand platelets 432 thousand

Possible causes for this condition would be a viral infection, toxin ingestion or protozoan (blood parasite) infection.

Veterinary Immune Tabs, antibiotics & prednisone were started.

Follow up:
8/4/08 - Recheck exam revealed that Smokey was very much improved. A Complete Cell Count was repeated and revealed a completely normal cell count.

In a non-febrile patient with this type of presentation this is an amazing bone marrow response. It would have to be assumed that the immunotherapy and not the antibiotics & prednisone had the ability to stimulate the marrow response. Research in human and rats does demonstrate that ingredients found in the Veterinary Immune Tabs have a positive effect on bone marrow precursor cells. We have seen this type of response in many cases in the past couple years.
